DTD, Day 13: Easter Trail at Virginia Water
Days like these are the reason that I started this Doing Things Differently project. We went somewhere different, we did something as a family and we had a lot of fun doing it. I really wanted to do something with Oldest for Easter this year. Last year, Littlest was born the Thursday before the Easter weekend and we were so busy with newborn chaos that we weren't able to take Oldest out for an Easter hunt like we planned. And we didn't this year either!
It rained the Saturday and the Sunday so we decided to stay indoors. But Monday rolled around bright and dry, so we took the boys (and N and our best friend, A) to Virginia Water for an 'Easter Trail.' Oldest was too young for it though, and N and A answered most of the questions that we were looking for as we walked around the lake. But it didn't matter. Oldest loved stomping his feet through mud puddles and running about in the trees. He even made a 'snow angel' as he was laying on the grass surrounded by flower petals. He had so much energy running around for most of the afternoon. And how was he rewarded? With a big bag of chocolates. Just what he needed :)
It really was a beautiful day.
